Malta as an iGaming Hub
Malta is an iGaming hub. The Remote Gaming Regulation took the country to the top as the first in the European Union to regulate remote gaming. In 2018, the legislative framework overhaul brought comprehensive regulations to safeguard the public interest, generate jobs, attract foreign investment, and prevent money laundering. All this without any compromise on the country’s GDP.
Malta iGaming Services
1. Licence Application
We will assist you in obtaining a licence from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) through a due diligence exercise on all key persons, directors, and beneficial owners of the prospective licensee. We will also assist you in preparing your policies and procedures to ensure that you have the operational and statutory requirements to meet the obligations.
Your business plan has to have a detailed operation forecast, including marketing and distribution strategies, an HR plan and growth targets. We can guide you through the application process and provide preliminarily advisory services to identify the type of licence that would fit your business model.
2. Key Functions
Under the new Gaming Act, licensees are required to identify individuals for key functions within the operation. Such functions include the CEO, CFO, CTO, and CMO. Only natural persons should provide key functions. Other official functions, such as Data Protection Officer, Money Laundering Reporting Officer, Internal Auditor, and Legal, may be outsourced. We will assist you in identifying the persons to fill in the necessary key functions within your iGaming operation.
3. Audits and Compliance
Licensees are required to go through a System Audit before they go live. The MGA may also request additional System Audits and Compliance Audits. As part of our advisory team, we have MGA-approved auditors who can provide you with Pre-Systems Audits and Pre-Compliance Audits.
